The first three years of life are a period of incredible growth in all areas of a child's development. Brain development and experiences during this period may set the course for many future behavior patterns. Outcomes can be observed through children's behavior as they attempt to communicate their feelings of wellness, abilities, and/or difficulties that they are having in their home, childcare, preschool, or other settings.  

Most occasional challenging behavior displayed by young children goes away without turning into more serious behavioral concerns. For some children, however, the behavior is more intense, occurs more frequently, and interferes with their ability to learn and form positive relationships with peers and significant adults. Persistent mental and behav¬ioral problems, especially those beginning in early childhood, can lead to a lifelong downward trajectory of antisocial behaviors. These difficulties can affect an individual's social development, educational attainment, employment opportunities, and risk of engaging in criminal activities.  

Join us on this call to learn more about key issues related to mental health in early childhood. We will also discuss innovative approaches geared toward fostering healthy social, emotional, and psychological development in young children to prevent preschool expulsions, to help them succeed in school, and to improve the systems of care available to serve them and their families.
